BodyDreaming® and “The Handless Maiden”

An Online Zoom Series of 4 Experiential Workshops
Marian Dunlea & Sheila Langston
Begins October 10, 2020

BodyDreaming - The Handless Maiden

This workshop will be offered online through Zoom – the link will be provided once you have signed up.
We have been offering BodyDreaming® and the Handless Maiden as a workshop for the past 3 years in Ireland, each year focusing on a particular section of the tale. Although we have been working sequentially through the tale, each workshop is independent of the other.
As in prior years, we will concentrate on one part of the tale throughout the online series, exploring the motifs and themes in depth.
Drawing on the fruits of our exploration we will examine any parallels with the unique circumstances of our time: lockdown, isolation, physical distancing, social unrest and economic turmoil.
What, during this pandemic and lockdown time, are the comparisons in our individual stories to the “Handless Maiden”?
How might this tale which mirrors an “entire life experience,” sustain and inspire us in this time of uncertainty, fear, and courage, guiding us to embrace new possibilities ?

BodyDreaming® focuses on supporting the nervous system which impacts the immune system directly. When we strengthen our practices to deal with overwhelm, isolation, trauma and grief and use tools that support greater resilience, ease and flow, we are more present to the Self-regulatory aspect of our dreams and of the collective psyche at this time.

Dates: Saturdays, 4:00 – 7:00 pm GMT (UK time), Oct 10, 17, 24 and 31st, 2020
Led by
Marian Dunlea
Sheila Langston
Fee:
Complete series (4 sessions / CPD 12h): Early Bird until August 31st € 290. Standard rate as of September 1st: € 360.

BodyDreaming® and Alchemy: the Splendor Solis

An Online Zoom Series of 4 Experiential Workshops
Marian Dunlea & Wendy Bratherton
Begins Friday November 20, 2020

BodyDreaming and Alchemy - The Splendor Solis

Splendor Solis – Treatise on Alchemy – Venus – The Peacock’s Tail (The Seven Flasks)
Reproduction of the French National Library copy. ca.1572

This workshop will be offered online through Zoom – the link will be provided once you have signed up.
Marian and Wendy have offered this workshop in the past both in the UK and in Ireland.
With the current state of global turmoil and the challenges facing us as individuals and collectively, we feel that the Splendor Solis workshop can offer us powerful images to contemplate and consider.

This workshop will focus on the 22 images of the 1582 illuminated manuscript in the British
Library called the Splendor Solis by Salomon Trismosin. This amazing sequence of pictures
graphically denotes the alchemical process of what Jung called the “objective psyche”, which is
linked to the archetypes and the collective unconscious. It is a visual representation of the
transformation of the psyche. A process which is both highly symbolic and has to be experienced.
We will ask what this richly crafted series of illuminations, from a turbulent era over 450 years ago
have to offer us at this present time of the Global Pandemic and look at its relevance for us
collectively as we undergo profound change.

BodyDreaming® focuses on supporting the nervous system which impacts the immune system directly. When we strengthen our practices to deal with overwhelm, isolation, trauma and grief and use tools that support greater resilience, ease and flow, we are more present to the Self-regulatory aspect of our dreams and of the collective psyche at this time.

“The Handless Maiden”

This event has been postponed
due to COVID-19 / Coronavirus

BodyDreaming™ Ongoing Professional Development Module

With Marian Dunlea & Sheila Langston

8th – 11th OCTOBER 2020
The Boghill Centre in the Burren, Ireland

BodyDreaming Handless Maiden (Oct 2017)

“Only a girl like this can know
what’s happened to you.
If she were here she would
reach out her arms towards
you now, and touch you
with her absent hands
and you would feel nothing, but you would be
touched all the same.”
Margaret Atwood

“The Handless Maiden offers material for a woman’s entire life process,
and covers a many-years-long journey. It is about women’s initiation through the rite of endurance, meaning to harden, to make sturdy, to make robust, to strengthen. Endurance means we are making something substantial.”
C. Pinkola-Estes

What is it to be a woman today? What is it that is coming into consciousness individually and
collectively at this time of great change? What are the values that we cherish? How do we embody
this new consciousness? How might we find our own robust and sturdy action in a world which is
crying out for the touch of the feminine?

This workshop offers the opportunity to explore these questions through the story “The Handless
Maiden”, as well as through play, embodiment, discussion and BodyDreaming™.

BodyDreaming™ is a way of working with dreams and images that tracks the pathways in the body
where the energy of the dream is held. It invites us into the place of healing between body and
dream, where old traumas, symptoms and complexes hold fast in the neural pathways of the body.
When supported, the body may be ready to release this blocked energy and be restored to its
inherent organic wisdom. Image and impulse align with greater ease and fluidity and we can feel
the ground of our sensing body interweaving with psyche, recovering our connection with the
living earth in a mutual participation.

Marian DunleaMarian Dunlea, M.Sc., IAAP, ICP, Jungian Analyst, Trauma Therapist, Core faculty of the Marion Woodman Foundation, Director and Trainer of the BodySoul Leadership Training Programme in Europe.

SAMHAIN BODYDREAMING™, QIGONG &
CLAY MASK WORKSHOP

 

This event has been postponed
due to COVID-19 / Coronavirus

 

12th to 15th November 2020
with
Marian Dunlea & Wendy Bratherton

The Ammerdown Centre, Radstock, BA3 5SW, UK

In response to the call from previous participants and in line with their feedback we are extending this popular workshop by one night, we have managed to secure another day along with the use of an additional art room.

“We come of age as masks
Our true face never speaks.” Rainer Maria Rilke
SAMHAIN BODYDREAMING & RED CLAY REVEALINGS

Come and create a clay mask at Samhain, the time of year when the Cailleach, the Old Hag of Winter, makes her descent into the Underworld to incubate the seeds of the new life that will emerge at Imbolc, the Celtic spring.

We meet the Cailleach at the threshold of Winter in working with the damp, dark clay, learning to trust our impulses, listening to our dream images, feeling our senses engage with the prima materia of the raw clay. The mask begins to reveal itself and we begin to relate to the mask energy, the hidden face of the feminine.

Using a combination of Qigong and Biodynamic Craniosacral work, we will deepen into our bodies to see how our energy is moving and resonating at this time in the year’s cycle. The bodywork will prepare us to meet a body of “matter” – the clay – and to make contact with the Cailleach energy.

And we will experience BodyDreaming™, a way of working with dreams and images that tracks the pathways in the body where the energy of the dream is held. It invites us into the place of healing between body and dream, where old traumas, symptoms and complexes hold fast in the neural pathways of the body. When supported, the body may be ready to release this blocked energy and be restored to its inherent organic wisdom. Image and impulse align with greater ease and fluidity. We feel the ground of our sensing body interweaving with psyche, recovering our connection with the living earth in a mutual participation.

Come and discover the mask that will take you into Winter, be your guide and companion in the times of descent and incubation.
